All Growsed Up

My Sweet Little Sassy Niece turns 3 today!
Happy birthday my little love bug.
We are having a fun party this weekend with Ice Cream Cake from Coldstones and Sangria for the big girls.
Here's a pic from her 1st bday:
This is her 2nd birthday.
These were taken this Summer. I can't believe how big she is getting.
We have a lot of fun together - we dance, we sing, and read books. We have modeling photo shoots and beach parties in the back yard. We love clothes and shoes. We used to talk on the phone more, but she's a little too busy for her boring old auntie these days.

I love watching her grow. She is smart, independent and definitely sassy.
I wonder where she gets that from.


In other news, I am up a couple lbs this morning. And that was AFTER my 5 miler. It's either due to my Hippo Habits of late or the 2lb goiter of a pimple on my cheek. I am nipping this in the bud and going crazy workout/diet girl for the rest of the week so I can enjoy the Ice Cream Cake and Sangria on Saturday.

I'll totally take your excuse that it's the 2lb goiter on your chin, not the hungry hippo habits!

We got a Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough cake from Cold Stone for my husband on his birhtday..we had enough that we ate it for a week! :)

I am running the Honolulu Marathon in December...thanks for the advice. I did pretty good yesterday...but I had a Cherry Coke Zero and I slept awful!!!

I need to just not have that in the house! :)

Cold stone and sangria? It's the best of both worlds!

Where in the world is the comment I just left. If it posts twice I will look like a goofball.
I think I said sumfin like your niece is super cute, and when they have a fun personality it just is a blast to spend time with them. Then I went on about how you will lose the 2lbs by the weekend when you go in to full on mode. Just does not have the same spunk the second time around...

Ice cream and wine... my two favorite things! I'm super jealous.

Cake, ice cream and sangria. Can I come?

Tammy said...

Awww, she is sooo adorable!

And, don't forget... up or down by 2lbs is still considered maintaining!

awww she's a cutie!
Don't go too nuts! I went to the nutritionist yesterday and she was showing me how your weight fluctuates every month by 3 pounds with your cycle and all that jazz. I forget if you weigh yourself every day, she told me to do it once a month. hah.

I have to agree ... totally adorable. You are a lucky auntie.

Kevin said...

Looks like she's going to grow up to be just like her fab aunt POM

Stephanie said...

Aww she's adorable!

Definitely the pimple. I ate steak and ice cream all weekend, and I feel thinner now than I did before the weekend - but I'm afraid to step on the scale and shatter my 'feeling' to bits!! Have fun with that ice cream cake and sangria...

Mendy said...

Happy (late) birthday to her! She's a beautiful little girl. Going to break the boys hearts, for sure.
